Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop

Today, I'm participating in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop,
where this month's challenge is an inspirational photo:


I love all of the colours and patterns.
I decided to also use this week's Make It Monday: Stamping and Mixing Patterns
to make my card.


I decided to stamp my panels with versa mark and heat emboss them.
The aqua mist panel was stamped with the little flower clusters from Bitty Bouquets and heat
embossed in Butter coloured Zing!
The yellow panel is Bazzill Chiffon, which coordinated well with the Zing!
I stamped it with a Clearly Besotted stamp and heat embossed it in white.
I diecut the scalloped border using my PTI Heart border die.


For my flowers, I used my new Brushed Blooms stamp set.
I stamped the full flowers in hawaiian shores and then in versa mark for the top layer,
which I heat embossed in butter coloured Zing!
The sentiment was stamped using Bitty Bouquets in aqua mist
and Wet Paint in hawaiian shores.
A button and twine finishes it off.

Thanks for looking!
